ODI World Cup 2023
The 13th edition of the Cricket World Cup, an ODI World Cup 2023 held every four years between men’s national teams and hosted by the International Cricket Council (ICC), will take place in 2023. From October 5 to November 19, 2023, India is slated to host. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was originally supposed to take place from February to March 2023.
The 2019 edition was won by England, the reigning champion, who defeated New Zealand in the championship match. It will be the first men’s ICC Cricket World Cup to be completely hosted by India after other nations on the Indian subcontinent co-hosted the event in 1987. 10 national teams are scheduled to play. The ODI World Cup 2023 winner will receive USD 4 million as prize money
Venues of ODI World Cup 2023
The ODI World Cup 2023 will be held in ten different stadiums in India. While the final will be staged in Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the first and second semi-finals will take place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and Eden Gardens in Kolkata, respectively.
The BCCI contributed cash for stadium upgrades and repairs. The seating area, hospitality boxes, drainage system, and grass field at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium have all been upgraded. Upgrades to the outfield, floodlights, corporate boxes, and restrooms were all present at Wankhede Stadium. New floodlights were erected at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, and two wickets were redone.
All ICC Cricket World Cup stadiums were told by the ICC to maintain boundary distances of at least 70 meters. The ICC wants to reduce the influence of the “Dew factor” and coin toss on the outcome of games. Additionally, they gave pitch curators instructions to leave grass on the fields.
